Description: At the heart of Logan Circle, along 14th Street, is the busiest arts and dining scene in the nation's capital. Barcelona Wine Bar & Restaurant, at the heart of it all, between Q and R streets, brings a mix of old and new-world elegance to the rowhouses and Victorians that line this historic neighborhood. Start the evening with a glass of wine at the bar or enjoy tapas in our open dining space or beautiful private room. For those who enjoy dining under the setting sun or a canopy of stars, our expansive and lush courtyard has an outdoor fireplace and offers a glimpse of 14th Street's vibrant street traffic.

This restaurant is the bomb dot com!!! We first visited it back in June where we met up with some close friends. We were blown away then by the outstanding wine/beer/cocktail lists and vast variety of tapas. This visit was no different! The food is freakin awesome and the service is beyond reproach. There’s a huge bar area and an outside patio area too which also has heating lamps to keep you toasty. The tapas (small plates of appetizers which originated in Spain) are perfectly sized and appropriately priced. We absolutely love this restaurant and are already planning another visit in the near future!

Crowded and fun Barcelona has a great menu and lot of options for drink. Wine, spirits, beer it is all there. Try the tapas and the Spanish wine. Couples, singles, groups... the place is good for whatever you like to do.

We went in a heavy rainy Friday evening, despite we have made the reservation in advance we had to wait more than one hour....
The place was very crowded but most people were there just for drink & music
I think they are not so good to plan the tables in the restaurant above all when it’s bad weather, as easily they are overbooked.
So consider to wait long time in this case!
About the food I love their tapas, both the quality and the variety, so no 5 stars just for the management in the reservation.

We went on a Saturday night, we had reservations at 7:15. We were not seated until 8. We had cocktails at the bar (great selection of unique yummy cocktails) while we waited. We got some starters for free due to our wait. The food was so WORTH the wait. Everything was delicious. We also had a pitcher of the red sangria. We had the branzino and chicken pimentoes. I had the eggplant and shrimp tapas (to die for). The atmosphere was chic, there was outdoor seating with heating lamps and blankets . I will definitely return
